Vaudeville! A Dazzling Display of Heterogenous Splendor

Vaudeville! A Dazzling Display of Heterogenous Splendor

This site is designed as a hypertext extension of Alan Trachtenberg's The Incorporation of America: Culture and Society in the Gilded Age. This site was not designed in anyway to present a complete history of American Vaudeville. Instead, I've tried to provide a lense through which to view vaudeville, a cultural phenomenon inextricably linked to the process of incorporation. However, unfamiliarity with Trachtenberg's text should not prevent visitors from using or enjoying this site. The casual browser will not find galleries of stars or a great deal of information relating to the men, women, and children that rose to fame as vaudevillians. For the visitor seeking sites of that nature, I've included a series of links in the Sources and Links section of this project.
